Spears/federline Custody Hearing Delayed
LATEST: BRITNEY SPEARS' latest court hearing in her ongoing custody battle has been postponed, prompting speculation of an agreement with ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE.
The singer's lawyers were scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday (15Jul08) for a further hearing to decide custody and visitation rights concerning the couple's two young sons.
But a Los Angeles court official has confirmed the meeting has now been rescheduled for Friday (18Jul08) - and gossip website TMZ.com is reporting the delay indicates conclusive talks are underway.
Spears won permission to spend the night with her children following her previous three-hour custody hearing in Los Angeles last month (24Jun08).
The former couple has been locked in a custody battle over sons Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one, since their split in November 2006.
